3 Questions You Should Ask When Hiring a Commercial Locksmith, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio

Protecting your business office or storefront—and its valuable contents—should be a priority regardless of the type of enterprise you operate. Security starts with doors—the access points to your premises. When hiring a commercial locksmith, have confidence that you’re making the right choice by asking these three questions.

Top 3 Questions to Ask a Commercial Locksmith

1. Are You Licensed, Bonded & Insured?

Door security should never be an afterthought. Lock installation requires experience, skill, and integrity. Don’t hire a locksmith who may not finish the job or do it correctly. Work only with a licensed and bonded locksmith. With these certifications and assurances, you know they’re obligated to complete all contracted work to your satisfaction and have all the required abilities, tools, and training to do so. If they carry insurance, you’re protected from any financial liability should a locksmith get injured while on your property.

2. Can I Have Referrals?

Although you should always be respectful of another business owner’s time, ask as many questions as you need until you clearly understand the quality of their work.

3. Can I Get an Estimate?

Don’t be surprised with a higher-than-expected invoice after the work is done. Ask potential locksmiths for an upfront estimate, including rates for labor and parts. Some may charge a flat rate for installing new door locks; others may price their services by the hour. Experienced locksmiths should easily be able to provide an estimate based on similar past projects.
